Adjacent anomalous or missing maxillary lateral incisors have been implicated in the aetiology of palatally displaced canines by not providing proper guidance to the canine during its eruption. However, a recent review of the literature suggests that the aetiology of palatally displaced canines is genetic in origin. The aetiology of ...
Berglund L - - 1996
Impacted maxillary canines in oblique horizontal positions may make orthodontic appliance treatment hazardous or impossible. Autotransplantation may be considered but the removal of the canine is often difficult and since atraumatic removal of the transplant is essential, autotransplantation is then impossible. A new possibility is orthodontic pre-treatment with distal and ...
